Rule 15 states "The defender picks the flagship" during a raid on a ship. Assuming both attacking ships and both defending ships are in the same space, does this mean that the defender gets to choose which ship the attacker is attacking with? Or does it mean the defender picks which ship gets attacked?

In either case, how does that make sense thematically?

Discussed literally dozens of times in these threads already.

Also, you should label references to rules not in the starting rulebook as spoilers.

The answer to your question is in the very next paragraph of the rules.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
"If you succeed in the raid, you may apply 1 damage to the defending flagship or plunder 1 item from the defending flagship's hold for each success rolled."

The rule is poorly worded.

The attacker gets to pick the attacking flagship. The defender picks the defending flagship.

Welcome David likes to point out things he finds obvious and others often don't, don't mind him too much
